Volunteer at Trailwalker

Trailwalker is a huge logistical exercise, and Oxfam relies on volunteers who donate their time to help make the event possible. We really could not do it without your support.

Volunteering is a lot of fun. It's a great way to meet new people, or to spend time with friends and family. Trailwalker is one of Oxfam's biggest fundraising events, so you'll be volunteering alongside hundreds of people from all walks of life - it truly is an amazing experience.

Volunteer roles available

Whichever role you take on, you could be saving Oxfam up to £200 - an amount that goes a long way in the fight against poverty. If you're interested in donating your time, find out how you can help below.

Checkpoint volunteers

There are 9 checkpoints along the route. We need volunteers to help set up each location, provide directions and assistance to teams and support crews, help with car parking, prepare drinks, and most importantly give encouragement to teams as they enter and leave each checkpoint.

We also need experienced event volunteers to co-ordinate each of the locations to make sure they are working smoothly and that any issues are flagged up to the organising staff or event control. This may involve managing a team of volunteers - great experience for your CV.

Additional roles

We need volunteers to register teams at the start, hand out medals at the finish line and, above all, to whoop, cheer and applaud the Trailwalker teams over the start and finish lines!

We were particularly grateful to the volunteers that helped keep us going when we were flagging. They were all remarkably kind, cheerful and supportive and helped motivate us all the way round.
